Thanks Frédéric :)
I dare say that's my first ever 'publication' in a foreign language  great stuff!

Solutions are easy. Understanding the problem, now, that's the hard part.

regarding the original query. It seems repetition of the characters is not allowed. This is therefore not a permutations calculator but is a combinations calculator.

This uses a binary mask to select the unique sets where one of each character are present. It runs in about 14 seconds.
declare @t varchar(10) = 'ABCDEFGH'
;with src(t,n,p) as ( select substring(@t,1,1),1,power(2,0) union all select substring(@t,n+1,1),n+1,power(2,n) from src where n < len(@t) ) select s1.t+s2.t+s3.t+s4.t+s5.t+s6.t+s7.t+s8.t from src s1, src s2, src s3, src s4, src s5, src s6, src s7, src s8 where s1.p+s2.p+s3.p+s4.p+s5.p+s6.p+s7.p+s8.p=power(2,len(@t))1

Frédéric BROUARD (1/8/2009) This calculus can be done in only one query(I think I am the first to demontsrate how to do that in one query only !) ;)  lest's assume that this table containes all datas to be permuted : CREATE TABLE T_CMB (CMB_DATA VARCHAR(8))  let's assume that the joker character ; (dot comma) is not used inside the data : INSERT INTO T_CMB VALUES ('ABC') INSERT INTO T_CMB VALUES ('DEF') INSERT INTO T_CMB VALUES ('GHI')  the following query does the permutations WITH T_DATA AS (SELECT CMB_DATA, 1 AS COMBINAISON, ROW_NUMBER() OVER(ORDER BY CMB_DATA) AS ORDRE, COUNT(*) OVER() AS N FROM T_CMB), T_RECUR AS (SELECT CAST(CMB_DATA AS VARCHAR(max)) +';' AS CMB_DATA, COMBINAISON, ORDRE, N FROM T_DATA UNION ALL SELECT T1.CMB_DATA + ';' + T2.CMB_DATA, T2.COMBINAISON + 1, ROW_NUMBER() OVER(PARTITION BY T1.COMBINAISON ORDER BY T2.CMB_DATA) ORDRE, T1.N FROM T_DATA AS T1 CROSS JOIN T_RECUR AS T2 WHERE T2.COMBINAISON < T1.N  this line must be delete if you want a repetitive permutation AND T2.CMB_DATA NOT LIKE '%' + T1.CMB_DATA +';%' ), T_COMBINE AS (SELECT CMB_DATA, ROW_NUMBER() OVER(ORDER BY CMB_DATA) AS ORDRE FROM T_RECUR WHERE COMBINAISON = N), T_N AS (SELECT 1 AS N UNION ALL SELECT N + 1 FROM T_N WHERE N + 1 <= ALL (SELECT LEN(CMB_DATA) FROM T_COMBINE)), T_SOL AS (SELECT *, REVERSE(SUBSTRING(CMB_DATA, 1, N1)) AS SOUS_CHAINE, REVERSE(SUBSTRING(REVERSE(SUBSTRING(CMB_DATA, 1, N1)), 1, CASE WHEN CHARINDEX(';', REVERSE(SUBSTRING(CMB_DATA, 1, N1)))  1 = 1 THEN LEN(CMB_DATA) ELSE CHARINDEX(';', REVERSE(SUBSTRING(CMB_DATA, 1, N1)))  1 END)) AS DATA FROM T_COMBINE INNER JOIN T_N ON SUBSTRING(CMB_DATA, N, 1) = ';') SELECT DATA AS CMB_DATA, ORDRE AS PERMUTATION FROM T_SOL CMB_DATA PERMUTATION   ABC 1 DEF 1 GHI 1
ABC 2 GHI 2 DEF 2
DEF 3 ABC 3 GHI 3
DEF 4 GHI 4 ABC 4
GHI 5 ABC 5 DEF 5
GHI 6 DEF 6 ABC 6 If you want a permutation with repetitive datas, simply delete the 18e line : AND T2.CMB_DATA NOT LIKE '%' + T1.CMB_DATA +';%' You'll get : CMB_DATA PERMUTATION   ABC 1 ABC 1 ABC 1

I have a new solution. This one is Recursive CTE but only builds valid solutions instead of all solutions. It will produce the 3.6 million permutations for a 10 character string in 3:02 minutes.
declare @t varchar(10) = 'ABCDEFGHIJ'
;with s(t,n) as ( select substring(@t,1,1),1 union all select substring(@t,n+1,1),n+1 from s where n<len(@t) ) ,j(t) as ( select cast(t as varchar(10)) from s union all select cast(j.t+s.t as varchar(10)) from j,s where patindex('%'+s.t+'%',j.t)=0 ) select t from j where len(t)=len(@t)
